Welcome to the February Edition of The Pink Flamingo!

Read on to find out about the news that has accumulated in the last few weeks – hiring a new faculty member, students traveling to national conferences, upcoming P/HD Club events, career-related stories, and much more. One thing regular readers may miss is our monthly trivia contests. Based on the low voter turnout (yes, we know, you’re focused on the Presidential primaries instead), we have been forced to conclude you don’t like our trivia contests. That’s okay; we’re not hurt – really, we’re not. However, if you see any faculty members holding back tears in the classroom, they just might be your anonymous editors! Now, the news:

  • P/HD Club’s First Spring Meeting: Tuesday, February 5th

  • Psi Chi News: Meeting and Induction Ceremony Coming Soon

Breaking News: Human Development and Psychology Hire New Professor!

The PF is happy to be the first media outlet to bring you this important breaking news story. Dr. Chris Smith will be the newest faculty member in the HUD & PSYCH departments this Fall. She is a fantastic teacher and a highly accomplished scholar, and we are simply thrilled that she will be joining us! In our exclusive interview with Dr. Smith, she shared the following message for students:

“I’m very excited to be joining the faculty of UWGB.  I am a Social Psychologist with a strong background and interest in Statistics and Research Methods. I also have a Doctoral Certificate in Women’s Studies.  I will be teaching a number of courses including Introduction to Psychology, Experimental Psychology, and Psychology of Women.  I also have a number of research interests and active research projects.  For several years I have been using personal ads to examine partner preferences.  I am also interested in the stigma associated with being fat, and I currently have a research project examining the relationship between empathy and self-esteem.  All my research includes students as active members of the research team, so I’m looking forward to new students and new research ideas.”
